Searching For: The Kent News

The Maryland State Archives is searching for issues of the newspaper The Kent News from 1858 and 1859 as part of a grand-funded research project on the Eastern Shore counties of Queen Anne’s, Kent, Dorchester, Caroline and Talbot to better understand the Legacy of Slavery in Maryland.

Can you help the Archives locate volumes of The Kent News that are vital for research on the history of slavery in Maryland?

In preparation to digitize issues of The Kent News newspaper published in Chestertown, Maryland, we conducted thorough bibliographic research. The Archives has not yet been able to locate issues or volumes of The Kent News for the years 1858 and 1859 in any repository.

Please contact the Maryland State Archives Department of Special Collections if you know of any issues of The Kent News from 1858 and 1859. Call 410-260-6410 or send an email to msa.helpdesk@maryland.gov.
